This issue has been solved. See solution.

Hello

In my company started using SEP for management, but we still suffer from some security issues and I believe that it comes from the outside. Such as flash drives or other media. Not yet created a policy to control this situation. Someone recommends a solution?

I can not block the use of USB it is important here. And even with the solutions passing attacks.
 It turns out that here on business operation and many employees not to take your information and return home.
 And with that some data is being stolen. I'll try to make a meeting where they will recommend the exchange of external solution for everyone who has to bring home their achievements for the company.
 But will apply the initial recommendation of support.

 thank you

Hi StevenN

 Create a security policy based on internal and external control. Most often certain pests or internet media affect systems when it comes to certain media house.
 A case you can be sure this is Stuxnet, which affected the system for espionage and they took that for sure because it came from the house of some official. Sometimes when using social engineering technique leaving as pendrives forgotten CDs also "forgotten" and that the idea is to affect some system home and business.
 Ideally you use home solutions from Norton and also recommend the use of these solutions the people working with you. Actually that is a minimum recommendation. I'm creating to make public a policy recommendation for use in small businesses and integrated solutions from Symantec Norton home.
 I recommend you use a medium if necessary before use in separate system of its network services.

 Big hug.
